Dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus the Christ, 

Those rendered sons & daughters of God by the blood of Jesus are to BE a “one-man defense system” against any aspect of demonic activity with authority in the Name above every name. Yet a significant number appear to have scant knowledge of God’s ability within them by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus. For to know what God has gifted by the finished work of Christ Jesus (to them who believe and confess Him), requires revelation of God’s Word by the Teaching of the Holy Spirit which precedes the self-awareness required to be “partakers of the Heavenly calling” (Hebrews 3:1). In other words, comprehension and application because cognitive knowledge requires belief which is faith that must be active to manifest the things God has already gifted. Therefore, we must first have knowledge that a gift has been given and receive or take possession of God’s gift by faith for its use. Every favor and earthly blessing – The Blessing is upon those made the righteousness of God by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 9:8,10,11). However, without revelation, sons & daughters of God have a tendency to view and speak of themselves as convinced by the world as opposed to how God views and speaks of His sons & daughters – fully restored in their status as heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ Jesus (Romans 8:17). For to be “in Christ” necessarily means to have been gifted everything God the Father has given the Lord Jesus; “. . . power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing” Revelation 5:12 (KJV).

  • And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—the Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].Colossians 2:10 (AMP)
  • By this we come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we abide (live and remain) in Him and He in us: because He has given (imparted) to us of His [Holy] Spirit.1 John 4:13 (AMP)  
  • For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.2 Corinthians 1:20 (NKJV)
